Pumpkin Pie Martini

Yummmm!!!! Who doesn’t love pumpkin pie in liquid boozy form? This cocktail is creamy, boozy, sweet, and delicious! I don’t live near a Starbucks, so I haven’t been able to indulge in a Pumpkin Spiced Latte yet, but this martini is even better! Halloween is quickly approaching and if you live in an area with a lot of kids, you may want to pour yourself one of these babies while you’re giving out candy.

Just do me a favor and don’t drink too many of these while passing out candy, otherwise, you might get too drunk and start giving out the Pumpkin Pie Martini AS the candy then land yourself in jail!

I can see it now, Police Officer knocks on your door, returning the full martini glass you just gave to a little boy as trick-or-treating candy.

Officer, “Sir/Miss, is this your martini glass?”

You, “No occifer, I’m fine, that’s not my martini glasssssss.”

Officer, “Sir/Miss, this martini glass has your name engraved on it. That little boy said you gave him your drink instead of candy?”

You, “WHAT? No! You (hiccup) can’t prove anything!”

Officer, “Actually, the little boy’s Mom was filming his first trick-or-treat outing and recorded the whole thing. We have you on tape.”

You, “Says who?”

Officer, “Says her iPhone.”

You, “I wasn’t speeding.”

Officer, “I never said you were driving.”

You, “Oh good, take me home occifer, I’m drunk.

I normally drink beer and rum, but this Pumpkin Pie Martini is a wonderful treat from time to time. Especially this time of year!

Now I normally avoid processed foods but I made this recipe with Pumpkin Puree Pie Mix. I tried on several occasions to make the martini with regular pumpkin puree, with different seasonings and kept fucking it up. I mean, it wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t Shock Munch worthy. The martini certainly didn’t taste like pumpkin pie.

So, I said, “Well screw this shit!” Then drove to the grocery store for Pumpkin Puree Pie Mix. That solved all my martini problems. I was able to get a subtle, yet distinguishable pumpkin pie flavor in the drink. The graham cracker/cinnamon/sugar rim adds just enough illusion to make you think you’re drinking liquid pumpkin pie! This martini is perfect for Halloween or even for a Thanksgiving party!

Note, I normally see pumpkin puree pie mix in huge cans, opposed to the regular puree in smaller cans. I found an organic pumpkin pie mix in a smaller can, but if the big cans are the only one you can find, don’t sweat it. Pumpkin puree freezes extraordinarily well. I put my remaining pumpkin into a freezer safe bowl and popped it into the freezer.

Plus, there are a plethora of ways you can use the leftover pumpkin puree pie mix in other recipes. You can make cookies, muffins, french toast, pie, pumpkin flan, more drinks, eat it by the spoonful, ect.

You’ll notice in the recipe I use vanilla vodka. Don’t worry if you only have regular vodka on hand, you’re adding vanilla extract to the drink, so the vanilla vodka can be subbed out with regular. Also, I used coconut milk because I had it in the house. If you don’t like or have coconut milk, half & half, milk, or cream, would work too.

So there you have it….a creamy, boozy, pumpkin, filled cocktail to kick off the start of fall right. Fall lovers rejoice!
